It’s no surprise that AZPetVet has a bit of a thing about animals. That’s why we always get a little extra excited about working with organizations like Gabriel’s Angels. Each year, they help thousands of Arizona’s at risk children through pet therapy. Since AZPetVet helps thousands of Arizona’s pets each year, we’re kind of a great match!
In fact, AZPetVet’s cofounder, Dr. Wayne Anderson, has been a trusted advisor to Pam Gaber, the founder of Gabriel’s Angels since it was just Pam and Gabriel. Of course, our family was much smaller then too – today we have more than 21 hospitals!
When Pam and Gabriel first set paws in the Crisis Nursery and fell in love with the children, the children fell in love with Gabriel right back. Pam knew that working together, she and Gabriel could make a big difference in little lives. She was right. Today, the Gabriel’s Angels serves more than 13,500 kids each year through more than 125 different nonprofit agencies. We couldn’t be more proud.
Today, we have Gabriel’s Angels therapy teams stop by different AZPetVet locations to meet the staff. They’ll share stories about their work, and the children they serve, while the team oohs and ahhs over the dogs. It’s clear why everyone loves them!
This year, as part of our Giving Back Initiative, AZPetVet became the title sponsor for the 2018 Unleash the Love Breakfast. This highly anticipated fundraising event is held every April, and features highlights of the work they’ve done, the goals for the next year, and of course – DOGS. With more than 50 therapy teams on hand, how can anyone resist helping and donating? Here’s to many more years of dogs and angels!
